Daphne was sanctioned away in a little back corner nook of the library–a regular sitting area of hers that she had found back in her third year–she favoured this particular spot because it was hidden away from the noise and chatter or other tables in the library. Daphne came to the library to do research. Not to socialize with her peers.
She was just getting to the good part of her Alchemy textbook when she heard the shuffling of feet behind the shelving unit in front of her. Knowing that those shelves housed a few key texts for Transfiguration–she opted to ignore it–knowing idle browsing was to be expected.
What she didn’t ignore however–was when the shuffling feet lingered, and the feeling of being watched penetrated her easy reading. Stiffling a sigh, she shot the shelf a glare.
“Whoever you are–you better have good reason to be watching me so vigourously.”

Hello, hi, so I started writing this a few months ago and stopped but now i wanted to finish it and this is probably the worst time to post this cause I feel there’s not a lot of people online at this hour but I’m annoyed with it and wanna go to bed so sorry if it seems rushed toward the end I just wanted to finish it TT
Horrible pain, confusion, annoying beeping – but
the things going through Jonghyun’s mind when he wakes up. The blond groans
when he tries to open his eyes because even his eyelids feel sore. He’s pretty sure every single inch of his body
hurts – from what, he’s no quite sure yet.
awake?” A soft voice asks with what sounds like poorly hidden excitement.
noise of discomfort leaves Jonghyun’s scratchy throat as he turns his head
toward the voice and he forces his eyes to open completely this time. He frowns
when he’s met with an unknown face.
man says and Jonghyun just then realizes that the stranger’s sitting with his
legs brought up to his chest on the chair beside his bed and that he’s playing
with a latex glove in his hand and – oh okay – he’s in a hospital.
blond barely makes out, clearing his throat to speak. “Who..?” He whispers
because the more he looks at the man the less familiar he looks and he really
hopes he doesn’t have some sort of amnesia because that would suck – he doesn’t
feel like he does but that’s probably what amnesiac people tend to think.
Jinki.” The brunet replies as if that would answer all of his questions so
Jonghyun just keeps staring at him. “I kind of…saved your life?” He adds and
Jonghyun’s mouth opens and closes a few times because he wants to say thank you
but he doesn’t really how you’re
supposed to show your gratitude to someone for something like that.
stands up then and flicks the rubber clove somewhere in the room before he
stretches and Jonghyun can’t even explain how or why he’s so fascinated with
the man but all he knows is that he can’t take his eyes away from him – maybe
it’s the fact that he looks completely gorgeous. The man has the kindest eyes
Jonghyun has ever seen, his smile can probably make anyone feel all warm
inside, his face is all sharp angles but round cheeks at the same time and with
the pushed back hair and white clothing, it’s such a perfect combination that
Jonghyun just stares.
will probably be here soon, your sister has school until late so don’t be too
sad she won’t be here for a while. And your best friend Kibum is out of the
country but he’s been calling every day.” Jinki smiles and Jonghyun frowns
again, pulled out of his reverie, because why does he sound so familiar with
his family and –
have I been out?” He rasps and for the first time Jinki’s smile drops a little.
fourteen days, five hours and forty-eight minutes.” He answers without looking
at any clock and Jonghyun’s not entirely sure if he wants to laugh or if he
should be freaked out because that man is definitely strange and creepy but he
happened to me?” He asks, choosing to ignore the answer he received – or the
fact that he’s still visiting after two weeks.
“Uh, you died.
Fell asleep while driving and crashed into a tree in the middle of nowhere. It
took me about fifteen minutes to bring you back. Trust me it wasn’t pretty.” He
explains as if talking about the weather and Jonghyun is even more confused
than when he initially woke up.
are you saying? How is that even possible?” He asks because while he might not
have extended knowledge on the subject, he’s pretty sure that you can’t just
reanimate someone dead for over a few minutes.
fact that I’m your guardian angel helped a lot.” He says too easily that
Jonghyun almost doesn’t catch the words.
He wants to
scream, run away, ask for a nurse or something because this man is clearly
delusional but he can’t. It feels
like everything inside of him forces him to believe the stranger, to trust him.
need proof?” He starts, jumping up effortlessly on the chair beside his bed
with the same stance as before. “I was told that a lot of human ask for proof
at first.” Jinki mutters, scratching at his nose but Jonghyun shakes his head
as much as he can in his position. He doesn’t want to know it’s real.
He replies and Jinki looks a little surprised before his smile is back on his
then. Your mom’s going to be here soon so I’ll leave you two alone but I’ll see
you soon again.” He says standing up and Jonghyun almost expects him to just
disappear in thin air but he simply walks toward the door.
He calls out somewhat weakly but the brunet just gives him a comforting smile –
he’s not even sure why he finds it comforting.
once you’re better. Rest for now.” Jinki says before leaving the room.
